billion. governor brown says, well, he's going to get to this number by first $8.3 billion in cuts. the rest he's going to make up in taxes. and he wants a compromise. that's why it's only partially on cuts. i'll tell you what the compromise is going to look like. you want to know what the compromise is going to look like? the compromise is going to look like happy feet! because the people of california are high-tailing out of the state! just look at what governor brown said. the reason we went from a shortfall that he imagined would be somewhere in the $9.2 billion area to $15.7 billion is because of all these people that have left the state. the revenues of his last tax increase just didn't generate the revenue. boy, how quickly all the experts are to berate the likes of art laugher, who always seems to have it right with regards to taxes. if you get overtaxed, in a way, where the taxes are paying bills in the rearview mirror, but your income that they try to tap is here moving forward, one of the recourses you have when it is a state is to say ariva under chi, california. many can't

. >> mark landsbalm did a great article on california. he pointed out in january, governor brown thought he would have ruffle a $9 billion deficit. it is looking like 15.7. they are going to have a referendum as to whether they will raise taxes. many of the experts that mark landsbalm talks about think that that deficit actually could be as high as $17 billion. today, versus 2008, this is great. think about your own lives. think about how you may be more controlled in your spending today than you were before the credit crisis. well, today versus 2008, california actually is going to spend $30 billion more. that's roughly a 15% increase and as this gentlemen pointed out in his column and i will ask you out there, whether it is on satellite radio or you are watching on your tv, how many americans are spending 15% more than they did in '08 and running a significant deficit? i think california might be only unique to other countries and other states, not necessarily citizens. last but not least, their k-12 schools, here is what's really fascinating. they basically want to spend $34 billion. how

-labor, you bring a powerful lawsuit on the eve of the election. >> one of my favorite tweets, josh brown writes, in jest, walmart will not violate the 1999 federal law that says its stock must trade between 50 and 60. >> splay been an amendment. constitutional amendments do pass. there is something interesting that's happening. i love dollar tree, but could walmart finally be waking up to the dollar offerings and recognize they have to shore up their bottom end? i think that it wall mars has been losing share to dollar stores. they may have changed the skews. this is a company that duke has done a good job. he's done take good job. >> the turn around in same store sales is proof in the putting of that. and they cite increasing pricing separation from other retailers and it that may speak to the point that it is pricing better to some of the dollar tree stores gaining in general merchandise and some of the grocery items that it had struggled with for so long. >> they changed their mix. they've gone much more toward natural foods. but sears had great numbers. >> gentlemen. making jcp -- yo
